Announcements from our principal: Mrs. Holt: Mrs. Holt, Principal

Attn: Students and Parents:

All the faculty and staff at the middle school are working hard to help our students succeed in their academics during this interesting situation. We are running into an issue with some VIRTUAL STUDENTS – Many of you are not reading your emails from your teachers and Mrs. Ellis – you need to read every email! You  need to read your emails at least twice a day – once in the morning and once in the afternoon.  Follow your teachers’ instructions in emails AND in Google Classroom Assignments.

For ALL Students: We hope you are staying safe including washing your hands (20 seconds or more) often throughout the day.  Also, please make sure the masks are being washed daily and dried.  Otherwise – they hold any germs and are no longer safe.  Also our Virtual Parent Night and Title 1 information can be found HERE and HERE.

Thank you!!!

MrsEllis_TestingCoordinatorNote from Mrs. Ellis – ESMS Testing Coordinator: In addition to ACT Aspire Interim and Summative Testing, our 5th and 6th grade students will also be taking the NWEA Map Testing this year (as following new state requirments).  NWEA MAP testing will start Monday, 1/11 for ALL 5th & 6th grade students. For more information about MAP testing, click HERE

ACT Aspire Interim 2 assessments will start Monday, 11/30 for ALL students. 

If you tested virtually for the first round, parents need to check their emails on 11/30 for usernames and passwords. Please have all 4 Interims completed by 12/11.  For more about ACT Aspire tests, click HERE

If you are new to virtual testing, the first thing I need you to do is go this Google Classroom (Virtual Testing) and do 3 things (watch training video, fill out the Digital Parent Security Agreement Form, and complete the 2-question Tech Survey. (SITE).  The State of Arkansas requires you to watch training video and fill out the form agreeing you will go through all the steps to keep the tests secure.  The tech survey is for me, so I will know who has the equipment needed for testing.  – Mrs. Ellis

We are having another exciting year of learning at Eureka Springs Middle School.

Creating a rich learning environment to support students is our goal.
